St. Norbert picked up to insurance runs in the seventh inning on a two-run single by Banovich to score Klegin and Kozinski.

Kozinski, Rottier and Banovich all had two hits apiece, with Banovich totaling three RBIs.

St. Norbert took a 1-0 lead in the nightcap, getting an RBI groundout from Rottier in the first inning. The Red Hawks answered with three runs in the fourth and fifth innings. Banovich singled in Klegin in the fifth inning for the game's final run.

Tyler Brown was 3-for-4 in the nightcap for St. Norbert, which had eight hits. Nate Schadrie took the loss, allowing nine hits and six runs in five innings. Matt Zacharias threw four innings of scoreless relief, allowing two hits.
